Otherwise Engaged

My friends Andrew and Garry had moved from Sydney to London just before Xmas, and the four of us had a night out in Piccadilly to see the Simon Gray's play Otherwise Engaged, about a publisher (Richard E. Grant), whose attempt to have a quiet day at home listening to Wagner is continually disturbed by intruding friends (Anthony Head et al) and family, until his life is completely turned upside down. Although Grant is the headliner, Head has the meatiest part as a somewhat dissolute journalist who turns up twice to exhaust his host's drinks cupboard. A well crafted and very entertaining piece.

    Who IS that dashing young man on the right, just there? Oh, it's me, how silly of me to forget ;-)
